HC Deb 24 March 1964 vol 692 cc49-50W
Mr. W. Hamilton

asked the Minister of Public Building and Works why the provisional estimate of £200,000 for the erection of Embassy Offices in Madrid has gone up to another provisional figure of £250,000

Mr. Rippon

Building costs in Spain have risen by nearly 25 per cent. since the provisional estimate of £200,000 was prepared in 1962. As a further increase is possible before building work starts, the revised estimate of £250,000, which is based on sketch plans, remains a provisional figure.
